How is everyone?! We are practically strangers; haven’t seen any of you since March!!! That’s 4 months!!!
Most recently I and several of our members who home hosted the Australians from the Sunshine Coast met virtually!!! It was incredible! We spent an hour “zooming.” Much information was exchanged and I was so disappointed I couldn’t come close to all of the gatherings their Club has had!
They have had virtual happy hours, teas, and most recently they were working on how they could actually get together for a picnic!! My apologies to you for not having encouraged meeting virtually any sooner!! Y’all surprised me when only 1 asked for assistance in preparing for the Zoom meeting!
I need your support, your enthusiasm, your determination to make our first virtual gathering a success. A few weeks ago, I asked who had an interest and about 15 replied. Friends, there are over 70 members! I thought we had a “captured audience” for Zoom events!
We have Joseph Badal, an author of 16 award-winning suspense novels, including Payback, which was released May 12 as our guest speaker!! He is an Amazon and Barnes & Noble Best-Selling Author, a two-time winner of the Tony Hillerman Prize, a three-time Military Writers Society of America Gold Medal Winner, an Eric Hoffer Prize Winner, and a two-time “Finalist” in the International Book Awards competition.
He must be good!!!
Mr. Badal will be talking about his most recent book, Payback, and how his characters evolve in his award-winning suspense novels!! Join us for a Virtual Luncheon!!!
Please make your reservations no later than Tuesday, July 7, 2020, by calling or texting Berta Wagstaff at 505-710-4448 or emailing her at firstname.lastname@example.org.

DATE: Saturday, July 11, 2020
